Blue Daisy


Have you joined in the STAMPlorations blog hop?  Three lucky hoppers will win a stamp set of their choice from the new release, and one even luckier hopper will win a $25 gift certificate for the STAMPlorations shop.  The hop is open until 11:55 PDT on Monday 15 September.

I'm channelling my inner Shery with this card.  I stamped the daisy on mixed media paper then threw some ultramarine Brusho powder over it and spritzed.  I painted some deeper shadows around it with Dusty Concord, and painted in a stem and two leaves, and scribbled leaf outlines with a black pen.  Then I added highlights with a white pen.

I used a grunge stamp for the background, then stamped the happy and birthday sentiments, adding white highlights to the birthday, and finished off with a black Gelato border.

I'm entering this into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Make Your Own Background.
